Marvel Comics to Publish Star Wars: Beckett in August

Posted by May 22, 2018 Comment

I’m seeing Solo: A Star Wars Story on Thursday. I am planning to be introduced to Beckett, played by Woody Harrelson, there and then. But if I really want to understand him, apparently I have to wait until August for this Marvel one-shot comic book by Marvel creators Gerry Duggan, Will Sliney, Edgar Salazar, and Marc Laming.

But who is this career outlaw and why is ENFYS NEST— one of the galaxy’s most dangerous and brutal marauders — so dead set on taking him down once and for all? Find out in this original tale of a man who has gamed star system after star system, but at a cost that no heist can make up for.
